Sometimes I start feeling my age a bit, like when I received the invite for the amazing Pete’s Dragon Red Carpet Event. The original “Pete’s Dragon” film was one of my childhood favorites, but it wasn’t until that mega-cool moment that I realized the original was produced in 1977! To my inner child, the joyful memories of watching the film are fresh. My adult self hasn’t seen the movie in probably about 20 years.
While this certainly made my 40-plus-self feels a little long in the dragon tooth, it also filled me with a sense of wonder on how powerful motion pictures can be to leave such lasting, vivid impressions. When I think about the original film, it lights my soul with heart-warming feelings and a deep-seeded love of all-things-dragon. I expect to find all this and more in the new re-imagined PETE’S DRAGON film that I’ll have the honor of previewing next week!
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, I (along with 24 other fabulous writers/bloggers) will be viewing PETE’S DRAGON for the first time at the red carpet premiere! That’s the stuff fairy tales dreams are made of to my dragon-loving-heart! I’m already filled with butterflies of anticipation and oodles of curiosity to find out things like if the red carpet will be green and what celebrities will be at this spectacular event.
